Pajamas Media’s Breaking “Exclusive” Covered by Schlussel a Month Ago

By Debbie Schlussel

More evidence that Pajamas Media is neither to be taken seriously nor believed.   First, I told you about the lie-filled video about Detroit by lazy punk (and anti-Semite) Steven Crowder.  He completely pulled “facts” out of his butt and made up things like “bear sightings” in Detroit.  Now, there’s Richard Pollock, PJM’s Washington Bureau Chief.



Today, he has what he claims is an “exclusive” on Janet Napolitano’s meeting, last month, with a group of Muslim extremists (he says it’s Muslims tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, but in fact, it’s many noxious Muslim and Arab groups) and other ethno-centric activists (and, of course, PJM’s slobbering former advertising partner, Michelle Fraudkin, regurgitates this “exclusive” BS).  Problem is, it’s not exclusive at all.  It’s old news, and something I covered on this site the day after it happened.  Schlussel Flashback:

Terrif: DHS Chieftess Recruits Muslim Extremists to Combat . . . Muslim Extremism?! – January 29, 2010, – 4:04 pm

And to make matters worse, Richard Pollock displays that he’s really not much of a competent journalist. Like his PJM colleague Steven Crowder, his phony faux-“exclusive” claims that the names of the organizations and participants in the Napolitano meeting aren’t available because Homeland Security refused to disclose them. Uh, hello . . . ? If you read my entry on the event, not only did I disclose some of the names and the organizations, but some of the Muslim and other organizations who participated also disclosed all of the participants in their own statements. Check out this press release, which discloses the names of all the organizations and the individuals representing them who were at the meeting.


I’ve cut and pasted, above, for the incompetent and research-challenged (that means you, Richard). And note that the Bush Administration–particularly Napolitano’s predecessor, Michael Chertoff–met with and welcomed all the same groups and people. New boss same as the old boss. (To those with the “miss me yet?” Bush signs, no, I don’t miss him. He wasn’t much better–or different–than Obama and I wish both were long gone.)

Here’s a tip to Richard Pollock for his next, um, “exclusive” (a month after everyone else wrote about it). Try google. I know that, like Steven Crowder, PJM likes to be lazy and lie, because they simply can’t be bothered to do their homework. But credibility is everything and PJM deservedly has less and less with people who have a clue (which doesn’t include Fraudkin, by the way).

“Exclusive”?  Only if you think “news” that bread now comes in slices is also “exclusive.”  Read it here first.  Skip the incompetents.

Debbie there are many reason why your site rocks. One is the fact that you do exhaustive research. That tenacity is to be admired. And I understand when a cheap replica like Pajamas Media (by the way a stupid name) steals your ideas that you should call them out. Unfortunately they and Michelle Malkin have no shame. They have jumped the shark.

I saw it posted all over Facebook today. My first thought was, “Wait a minute! I read this a while ago.” That’s because I already saw it here, first. You don’t have to keep score, Deb. You were way out in front on this info.

Steve Crowder is a joke, I cannot watch him with his silly little performances on PTV and wherever. His style is soo obnoxious.

Pajamas Media is not all bad, they have Phyllis Chesler writing for them for one and she’s very good, and they have done an excellent job of exposing global warming hysterics and one of the best at exposing the still unfolding ClimateGate scandal. Their exposé of a the very recent related ClimateGate scandal on the US side of the pond has been first-rate. The name though ‘pajamas’ is silly and reflects a lack of seriousness on their part.

Yes, Debbie, I have noticed a disturbing pattern at PJM of ripping-off others stories and then claiming exclusives. It probably comes from their association with UBER KLOWN Charles Johnson from Little Green Footballs.

One of my favorite authors, Dr. Robert Zubrin provides articles to Pajamas Media so I am vaguely familiar with them. I’ve always wondered about some of the people whose columns appear on PJM and can’t say that I’d endorse them.

That being said, when it comes to national energy policy, I continue to recommend reading Dr. Zubrin’s columns whether they appear on PJM or Atlantic Monthly or wherever.
